Teen Poetry and Spoken Word Open Mic Night at Centennial Hall

Saturday, May 13, 2017 - 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Categories: Poetry Event

Calling all teen poets and spoken word artists! Do you like writing poetry or lyrics, but have nowhere to perform? Join MPL for our 2017 Teen Poetry and Spoken Word Open Mic Night featuring the anti-violence theme "Milwaukee is a Butterfly"! We want you and your words to be heard-don't be shy! Give a dramatic performance of an original or not-so-original poem or spoken word piece for a supportive audience of your peers and community members. Winners of the Teen Poetry Contest will also be announced at the event and winning poems will be shared. Don't miss this dramatic wrap-up to Poetry Month hosted by the Teen Advisory Board. No concealed or openly visible firearms or other dangerous weapons are allowed. This program is suitable for teens and up.
